Ah, middling sci-fi. There's so much of it. This one features Richard Weber in a minor role as the hero's copilot delivering this stultifying line in the first act:
"Y'know captain, every year of my life I grow more and more convinced that the wisest and best is to fix our attention on the good and the beautiful."
In the only other movie in which I've seen him act, 12 to the Moon, and in a much larger role, he again gets to deliver bad lines, but that movie is packed with bad lines. I don't think any other actor could have made Weber's lines come across as anything but idiotic, but being such a bad actor, they made his scenes memorable howlers in both movies.
Otherwise, the acting in good enough. The movie has a wild and stupid story, cute young women, a fight over one such woman, and goofy-looking aliens, all seen in a number of films from the era. I think it all started with Cat-Women of the Moon. I like it because of the women, it doesn't bore, nostalgia, and the inadvertent humor.
If you can't see that sometimes what's bad in movies is funny, you have my pity as you'll never be able to fully appreciate what they have to offer. These things were funny to audiences at the time, and still are.

Quite interesting picture with not too bad special effects, a partly good cast. Of course, it is also full of clichés. A man between two women, which one will he choose, a jealous rival who wants to kill him etc.
But I liked it and so will you.

Falling somewhere between "Plan 9 from Outer Space" and "The Day the Earth Stood Still" (not a complete turkey, but not a masterpiece either), this is an entertaining B-Movie with a delightfully absurd plot, some good cast members and not too bad production values. Silly, fun and unusual, and recommend for b-movie fans.

With its good production values, good cast and even a worthy background score, this is solid '50s science fiction - that is until minute 28 when it makes a sudden left turn into downtown Schlockville, with our hero landing on a mini-planet full of 6 inch people, the cute ones in miniskirts. Rather than a disappointment, it turns this flick into a whole different kind of fun, featuring silent film star Francis X Bushman, beautiful girls including Coleen Gray and one of the funniest monsters ever. The planet-side plot involves a trial with an all-miniskirt jury, a push-pole duel to the death (almost), a space war against the dreaded "Solarites" and the aforementioned monster stumbling around papier-mache cave sets carrying an unconscious cutie. What more could you want? Don't miss this one! CAST NOTES: In spite of her good looks and acting talent (see "Nightmare Alley" costarring Tyrone Power) Coleen Gray's film career never managed to go very far. If the old studio system had survived, it might have been a different story. Francis X Bushman's acting career spanned from 1909 to 1966, during which he appeared in no less than 209 productions, usually in starring roles.
